The cast came off my arm yesterday, and I was kind of expecting to see a white shrivelled looking arm, but instead it's swollen and lumpy and it hurts. They sent me out with a stupid triangular bandage to support it, that was as useful as a chocolate tea pot, so I bought a brace, and that feels so much better, I can take it off to exercise it, or to wash, or when resting, but will wear it while using it for a week or two I think. Last night I wrapped with a polo bandage, that worked really well to keep it comfortable overnight .
The horrible figure eight shoulder brace has to stay a couple more weeks, just to make sure that the clavicle has set for sure, he is very impressed, with how it has done, and is just playing safe!
The broken ribs are still really painful, Oh to be able to have a full nights sleep, rather than a bunch of two hour instalments, and sleeping flat would be a huge bonus. This is taking so much longer than I thought, very frustrating, but progress is being made.
